If you’re not content decorating your Silca floor pump with a bottle opener, then perhaps you’d like a one-of-a-kind hand painted one from none other than budding artist (and pro cyclist) Taylor Phinney.

Perhaps you spied them in Richmond, but here’s the full look at the first to go up for auction. It’s a Silca SuperPista Ultimate that’s being bid up on eBay. All proceeds benefit the Davis Phinney Foundation, his father’s charity organization, that helps people with Parkinson’s Disease live better lives.

Video and more pics, plus the link to the auction, below…

I like Silca. I like the old Silca pumps even though they suck by today’s standards. I just don’t like the new Silca Richie-Rich price.

But this paint job is cool. And Taylor Phinney is a good guy. I also think the Davis Phinney organization is really outstanding and it is for a good cause to help people with Parkinson’s disease. So, I hope they make alot of money for the organization.

Taylor should paint his bike for one of the races next season, and then auction off the bike at the end of the season. I think they would get more money raised that way.

Hilbert, the article is also about a fundraiser for Parkinson’s Disease that Silca is graciously helping to support.
Good job showing your true colors.

If Silca is really donating the pumps and all of the sales prices goes to the Taylor Phinney charity, that’s good. If they are merely adding the cost the auction brings and giving the difference to the Taylor Phinney charity, not so good.

I don’t think we should support Parkinsons.
I’m against it.
